    Liv2ski, no Maytag here unfortunately. Thought zee germans would do a better job given how well the rest of it goes. Next step was a Miele dishwasher but I like money more than Miele stuff in my kitchen.

    You know photoflo? You've only been here since '19. That's like 14 years before I started posting. How old were you then?

    But get some photoflo. Or google it. I've never had a washing or drying machine either. I do have cassette tapes and sick sbd flacs though.

    My dishwasher seems to have a rinse cycle. Ive never felt it needed assistance with that
    Dry Aid might be nice though. The dry cycle just seems like a waste of energy.

    Fun fact. Modern dishwashers don’t have heated drying cycle.

    That’s why you get that fancy stainless steel interior.
    Condensation and a slight fan running

    Rinse aid can help your fancy glasses from getting water spots. But it’s not needed. Just ignore the light if you don’t care.

    PS. Use the China cycle. It’s a shorter wash and works just fine. The normal cycle is too long. And wtf with the pots and pans cycle?

    Our dishwasher will actually crack open at the end of the dry cycle which lets a ton of the steam out and significantly helps drying the dishes.

    Pro tip - Forget the fancy (and expensive) rinse aid. Go down to Safeway (or where ever) and buy yourself a gallon of white vinegar for $1.95 and use that instead. It works just as well. You're dishes will be spotless and the gallon jug will last you years. You're welcome.

    Yeah rinse aid is great for places with hard water, its acidic and helps clear lime scale from the inside of the washer as well as your glasses. Ive lived places where in a month of washing, the glassware was super cloudy and when it gets to that you need to do a vinegar bath in the sink.

    Vinegar in the rinse bin does ok at counteracting the scaling but it doesnt act as a surfactant, so youll still probably get water spots.

    Went to lumberyard to get some materials to make a new base for the tractor shed. Came home and started working, then went in the shed to get an extension cord. Noticed some buzzing as I was untangling the cord, then a swarm.

    After things calmed down I saw the rapidly expanding baldface hornet nest. No wasp spray to be found. Of course I literally just came from the store.

    Tried some carb cleaner but it just doesn't have the distance, and didn't want it all over. Got the tractor out, tried standing on a box. Almost got stung 3x.

    I give up for the day

    Was looking at Askos when I bought the Bosch. Both looked good, but ended up picking the devil I know. Apparently the quality is still there, just really comes down to personal preference I guess.

    Never had the slightest clue that TGR had a wealth of dishwasher and rinse aid expertise. Either that or I touched on a common nerve.

    I failed to mention that as I was falling off the box and running in sheer terror, some of the carb cleaner blew back at me. That shit stings the eyes.

    They might get torched later today.

    Safe bet would be wait for cooler weather tomorrow and hit them with proper spray.

    Oh I have, but I know better than to complain publicly about dishwasher loading tactics.

    Yeah, I've used my dishwasher with rinse aid and without and I can't tell the difference. I'm sure well water would be a different ballgame.
